    umuro, I am having similar problems, except I use an Nvidia card, so maybe I will look into using PulseAudio, even though it seems it's not intended for use with Kubuntu at this time.

    I tried Pulse audio. I was fantastic. I were able to redirect sound anywhere on the fly. Every sound device. Even over the network.

    But... Except... "Logitech Z Cin?ma"

    Pulse audio was never able to select Z Cin?ma because of its weird name. So far I could not find a way of overcoming this name with a foreign character problem with pulse audio, too. Like asoundconf, pulseaudio uses their names to target the devices. This is good because your usb hardware could be on a different slot the next day. But they are only working with ascii names!

    Would it be possible to configure pulse audio to use a virtual alsa device so that I can workaround this name problem?

    So far potential solutions seem like
    a) Writing an advanced alsa configuration that allows sound overlaying. That requires digging into low levels of alsa which are not required by anybody nowadays.
    b) Going beyond what is possible in visual configuration tools for pulseaudio. So that I can address the device without referring to its name but hardware slot.

    If I do any of those then I'll become ultimate audio configuration guru
